Johnstone’s Nec Entrance
For nearly 40 years, the NEC has played host to thousands of successful events, shows and exhibitions. With more than 500 events attracting millions of visitors each year, the NEC has become an iconic part of the Birmingham landscape.
Tasked with repainting the exterior metalwork of the iconic facility, Walsall-based Modmill Decorators opted for Johnstone’s Steel & Cladding Semi-Gloss Topcoat in brilliant white.
The product, which forms part of the brand’s Performance Coatings Metal Defence System, has been formulated to provide long-lasting anti-corrosive protection for metal and profile claddings and is also resistant to UV damage.
The area was fully prepared prior to repainting with the team from Modmill using high pressure jet washers to strip back the paintwork completely.
Dean Westbury, project engineer at the NEC, added: “The NEC is visited by millions of people every year so it is vital that the entrance is kept fresh and makes a lasting first impression. Not only that, but with Resorts World Birmingham opening on the NEC site later this summer we’re going to see a game-changing development so we need to look our best. Johnstone’s products have allowed us to achieve this and we would have no hesitation in specifying products from its range again in the future.”
